Ms. Pac-Man Review
Overall - 8
Ms. Pac-Man on the NES is a good game to play. When I tried this game out, it was somewhat similar to the original Pac-Man game. The only difference was that you look like Pac-Man with lipstick on and a bow on your head. I am surprised that they would make a game like Pac-Man, but with a female version of Pac-Man. You do not see those everyday on games. Anyways, the game play is basically the same and it is a whole lot of fun. It plays as an arcade game and it is a lot of fun for the family and friends.
Graphics - 9
The graphics are good. They are pretty much the same as the original Pac-Man. The effects are somewhat the same. It is very good graphics. Really brings back that memory in the past.
Sound - 9
The sound is the same as the original Pac-Man. Pretty much everything is the same, especially with the chomping and the gulping and collecting items in the game.
Addictiveness - 7
The game is fun to play, like I said, but I would probably play the original Pac-Man more than this one because I think that this game is a little more difficult than Pac-Man (just saying). They both are good arcade games, but I just rather play Pac-Man than Ms. Pac-Man. I am not saying to not try this game out because of my opinion, it is what I think about the game. Do not try a game out that you think is not fun.
Story - N/A
There is no story in this game. All you do is go around chomping on yellow beads and gulping on ghosts that are blue and avoid getting touched by the colored ghosts. We all know what we do in this game. :)
Depth - 8
The game has more features than the original Pac-Man game. For instance, the levels change in this one. They are not the same as Pac-Man over and over again. The level will look different and I think that if you get farther into the game, the level will get bigger. That is pretty much the difference in the two.
Difficulty - 6
Like I said, I think that this game is harder. I do not know why, probably the level changing, but I seem to be harder than Pac-Man. The only problem you will have in this game is the ghosts. If you have a good strategic way of beating the game, you will do good. I am not that kind of person that is a pro at this. It is hard if you have no idea on what to do to avoid the ghosts.
Wrap Things Up...
Ms. Pac-Man is an okay game to play, very classy and a great arcade game. I recommend trying this game out if you have not already cause it is just like Pac-Man, only a little different. I guarantee that you will like this game if you play Pac-Man games. :)

Ms. Pac-Man Box Description: Gobble, gobble, gulp. Ms. Pac-Man chows a power pellet and it's dinner time. Fly around the mazes at top speed while you dine on ghosts and score big points. Watch out! Don't let those little haunters get their hands on you or you're history.
Ms. Pac-Man Description: In 1982, a sequel to the incredibly popular Pac-Man was introduced in the form of his girlfriend, Ms. Pac-Man. This sequel continued on the "eat the dots/avoid the ghosts" gameplay of the original game, but added new features to keep the title fresh.Like her boyfriend, Ms. Pac-Man attempts to clear four various and challenging mazes filled with dots and ever-moving bouncing fruit while avoiding Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Sue, each with their own personalities and tactics. One touch from any of these ghosts means a loss of life for Ms. Pac-Man.Ms. Pac-Man can turn the tables on her pursuers by eating one of the four Energizers located within the maze. During this time, the ghosts turn blue, and Ms. Pac-Man can eat them for bonus points (ranging from 200, 400, 800 and 1600, progressively). The Energizer power only lasts for a limited amount of time, as the ghost's eyes float back to their center box, and regenerate to chase after Ms. Pac-Man again.Survive a few rounds of gameplay, and the player will be treated to humorous intermissions showing the growing romantic relationship between Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man, leading all the way up to the arrival of "Junior".
